This commit message is useless: it should not talk about what your patch
does - that should hopefully be visible in the diff itself. Rather, it
should talk about *why* you're doing what you're doing.

Also, your patch does a bunch of things at once.

From: Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst

"Solve only one problem per patch. If your description starts to get
long, that's a sign that you probably need to split up your patch.
See :ref:`split_changes`."

You should have a look at that file.

Also, avoid having "This patch" or "This commit" in the commit message.
It is tautologically useless.

Also, do

$ git grep 'This patch' Documentation/process

for more details.

What does "ECC on 0x0000" mean?

those look useless to me too. Probably invalid/unpopulated by BIOS...

Sorry but I fail to see how this changed error record is an improvement.

What for?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

mem_err->responder_id for both responder and target?!

I don't know if some dumb BIOS simply sets those valid bits regardless
of whether those fields are populated or not... It looks like it...

Right, so first this needs to explain *why* you're doing what you're
doing. And then with each reason why, you should do a patch, one by one,
explaining the rationale.

/me goes and looks at the next patches.

Aha, and you add all that crap here just to remove it in patch 2. But
this is all useless churn.
If you want to use cper_mem_err_location(), why don't you simply use it
directly?

And so on and so on...
